Midtown Productions Presents: The Exonerated

August 21- September 6, 2014 | Thursday-Saturday at 8:00 PM and Sundays at 3:00 PM.

What effect does it have on an innocent person to have their freedom and self-respect stripped away and then, ostensibly, returned years later after decades of incarceration?  Culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and the public record, The Exonerated tells the stories of six wrongfully convicted survivors of death row in their own words. The true, breath-taking stories are presented in first-person monologues and scenes, set in courtrooms and prisons.  The six perfectly interwoven stories paint a picture of an American criminal justice system gone wrong —and of six brave souls who persevered to survive it.

Contains adult dialog and stories.   Not recommended for people under age 12. 

Tickets:
$20 – Adults
$18 – Seniors (65+)
$16 – Child/Students w/ID

Halsey

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art presents Two Photography Exhibitions

August 22 – October 4, 2014

Yaakov Israel: The Quest for the Man on the White Donkey 
Kathleen Robbins: Into the Flatland

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston School of the Arts kicks off the Fall 2014 season with exhibitions featuring two contemporary photographers; Yaakov Israel and Kathleen Robbins. The exhibitions will be on view at the Halsey Institute August 22 – October 4, 2014. Admission is free. The opening reception on Friday August 22, from 6:30pm to 8pm will be open to the public and include complimentary refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres provided by ICEBOX and Whole Foods Market. Both exhibitions are curated by Mark Sloan, Director and Chief Curator at the Halsey Institute.

The Quest for the Man on the White Donkey, by Yaakov Israel, consists of images taken all over the country of Israel. Inspired by the Orthodox Jewish tradition of the Messiah (the Prophet) who will arrive riding on a white donkey, this 10-year photographic project features portraits and landscapes highlighting Israel’s diversity. This project is the result of Yaakov Israel’s search for a deeper understanding of his country and an attempt to relay his personal experiences on the Israeli reality with a broader sense of belonging to the global human collective.

Into the Flatland, by Kathleen Robbins, is a series of photographs documenting the land, people, and culture of the Mississippi Delta. The artist returned to her ancestral home as an adult in 2001 after completing graduate studies in New Mexico. She and her brother lived on the family farm for nearly two years, breathing life back into properties that had been long dormant.

Filth

Filth presented by Park Circle Films

August 23, 2014

Filth – Rated R — 97 minutes

FILTH is a 2013 Scottish crime comedy-drama starring James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, Imogen Poots, and Jim Broadbent.
Scheming Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Toal. As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control. His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?
7:00pm; General Admission: $5.  For more information visit http://parkcirclefilms.org/films/filth

Tease It Out at Redux Contemporary Art Center

Through September 27, 2014

Redux Contemporary Art Center presents Tease it Out by Kate Nartker and Katey Crews.

“Nostalgia is a profound filter on our memories and images of the past. It is a manipulation of history, and a distillation of our emotional responses to a wide range of events, people, and contexts. When our work comes together, a sense of personal and patriotic nostalgia intertwine. Collective memories of Americana surface, and a new overarching narrative emerges.” –Kate Nartker and Katey Crews

Join the artists on August 8, 2014 for the Artist’s Talk at 6:00 p.m. and the Opening Reception from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Food and drinks will be at the reception. Both are free and open to everyone.

Redux Contemporary Art Center/136 St. Philip Street, Charleston SC 29403/843.722.0697.  For more information visit http://www.reduxstudios.org
